A great Experince

I contacted adventure Mission Nepal reading his reviews and his facebook page.
I was greeted by a warm voice on the other end raj.
All in all, he helped with a great personalised tool for us (a couple) and which we were well-taken care off and got to see Nepal and all its beauty.

We liked it so much, that we will be returning the following here, for another trek.
I do recommend very strongly.
